A new nightclub opened in the capital of Spain this month, catering for deaf people.
The songs that play in the nightclub are accompanied by subtitled videos and sign language videos that are projected on various screens throughout the venue.
The new club called “Equal” opened its doors on the 1 December. Located on the street Goya 33, the new project has been sponsored by one of the most important entertainment groups in Madrid: Tripfamily.
Although the new nightlife venue is not exclusively for deaf people, all the staff that work there with the exception of the security staff know sign language. The security staff are accompanied at all times by an official interpreter.
Equal is open Thursdays from 21:00 to 2:00.
